    Catalyst Rx pros and cons

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Rockville, MD
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rockville, MD

    I worked at Catalyst Rx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Catalyst Rx was a growing, entrepreneurial company that was a pleasure to work for. Everyone knew each other and worked incredibly hard to ensure that the company succeeded.

    Cons

    The company became too top heavy in 2011 and 2012. New executives were brought in instead of the company investing in staff and funding company initiatives.

    I worked at Catalyst Rx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    work from home/internet reimbursement
    decent pay
    401k
    plenty of resources for information

    Cons

    difficult to take PTO/bad scheduling practices
    expensive medical benefits
    lots of technical issues
    overall lack of communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since this company merged with SXC and became Catamaran the restructuring became monstrous, as a result I did not know if I would have a job from one day to the next. If they would have been more transparent with their communications I would have stayed with them forever. Although I became frustrated with my daily work schedule and not being able to take any PTO for over a year I had a great working relationship with almost everyone there which is so important for morale and productivity. My advice to management: remember that your employees are individuals and need to prepare for the future even if you're unsure of it.

    Cubical 8-5 every day. A lot of phone time.

    Pros

    Benefits - that's it. You trade your sanity for them though.

    Cons

    During my tenure...10+ years in helping to develop a "sellable" product...the early years were great...but greed set in and those who helped to create a wonderful working environment have all been let go...it's a terrible place to work now. Unorganized, no communication, poor management with no qualifications or skills to do the job. They are never ahead of the game...this company played catch up since day 1 and they have never been able to keep up with the demands of the clients, their infrastructure is completely broken, most don't even have the necessary tools to do their jobs...everyone is in a work around mode. They no longer want people to work well together but have turned a teamwork environment into a shark tank. My job was eliminated after 10 years...but I was plenty qualified for many other job openings...was I offered this? No....it's about money. I was niave...beware. Shady practices keep the money flowing for them...having realized this in the end, I am much better off since it isn't in my chemical make up to lie and avoid issues as they are doing now. It was wearing and tiresome they make your life hell hoping long time employees quit so they do not have to pay out a severance because you were always a good employee with no disciplinary action so they can't fire you. Although I am not with the protesters supporting ":occupy wall street" but Catalyst Rx is the opitimy of why this movement is important to some...they are way too big for their britches now and it;'s a matter of time before a competitor comes and buys them out, though the fatheads at the top are too blinded of what is really happening at the bottom. The turnover is now high...due to the lack of respect for employees...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since Rick Bates became the CEO your already crumbling company is further going in the toilet...to ignore the customer service that is being provided and how it's being provided is a huge mistake. You many think techs/reps come a dime a dozen but quality loyal people is what you want to be singing your praises. Check your leadership...really check them. There is no corporate culture but utter chaos. There is no communication flowing down to the levels it should, particularly Provider Relations. I hope you all sleep well at night (though by your actions I am sure you really don't care)...because I know without a doubt many employees and their families that have been affected by the poor working environment you all have managed to turn into.

    Pros

    Fast Growing Company with good insight.

    Cons

    Top Heavy and HR does not do a good job of recognizing inside talent and often brings employees from outside who do not always do a better job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More middle management, less top managment and less siloed environment.
